The Binolla platform allows traders to switch between expiration modes. To do that, you need to click on the grey flag in the trading area above the expiration field.

The first mode is the timer. You can set the time left before the expiration. For instance, by setting it to one minute, you will set expiration to one minute and the contract will expire in 60 seconds. By switching to the Clock mode, one can set the exact time of expiration (according to one’s timezone). For instance, by setting expiration at 14.35, your contract will expire at 14.35. Remember that the expiration time you set can not be higher than the maximum expiration time on the platform. 

When opening a trade, one can see a special vizualization demonstrating the area in which the price should be at the moment of expiration.

When hovering over Higher or Lower buttons, traders will see a visualization on the chart. In particular, when you hover over the Higher button, the part of the chart that is above the current price (strike price) will be colored blue and a blue arrow will appear.

Hovering over the Lower button works the same way. A trader will see the red arrow and the area below the the current price (strike price) will be painted red.

3: Chart Area 

This is the main area for traders when it comes to thinking about where to buy a particular digital option contract. Here you can see the chart itself and the timeframe that you can change according to your preferences. We offer time intervals from 5s. to 1d.  To choose one, you need to click on + or – below the main chart area. 

You can choose whatever type of chart is available on our platform. To do that, you are to simply click on the chart icon at the top of the chart area.

The Japanese candlestick chart is set by default, but there are three more options that you can choose from, including:

  • Heikin Ashi. This type of chart looks similar to classic Japanese Candlestick with bodies and wicks, but it has major differences in how to read it. Unlike the Japanese Candlestick chart, this one’s last price is calculated as Open+High+Low+Close/4. Find out more about Japanese Candlestick (link).
  • Line. It connects price dots from left to right and demonstrates pure price fluctuations. Learn more about line charts here (link).
  • Bars. They use the same formula as the Japanese Candlestick chart but have slightly different appearances. Instead of bodies, there are only vertical and horizontal bars on the chart, which is where the name of this type comes from. Discover how to read bars here (link).

Switching between various types of charts may depend on your preferences that are based on price perception. Moreover, some types of charts like Japanese Candlestick allow you to make price predictions without even using technical indicators. Read more about those candlestick patterns in our Candlestick Charts: The Most Popular Reversal Patterns article.

Chart Visualization

A special visual feature allows traders to see the eventual beginning and end of a trade even if they haven’t yet joined the market. Moreover, by increasing the expiration in the Expiration field on the right side of the platform in the trading area, one can see that the distance between the beginning of the trade and the end of the trade expands as well. This will allow traders to better plan their entries as they can see where the price can be when the contract expires.

Binolla Blog Image - Binolla Platform General Guide 22

Another additional feature that one can enjoy on the Binolla platform is the opportunity to stylize it on their own. By clicking on a square icon at the bottom-left part of the chart, a trader will see a special pop-up window with colors and candlesticks. They can change between filled and hollow candlesticks as well as change the color of both bullish and bearish candlesticks.

Those using candlesticks, bars or Heikin Ashi can switch between different timeframes. To do that, a trader should click on the icon with the current timeframe at the top of the chart. A window with all possible timeframes on the Binolla platform will pop up. Once a trader clicks on any of the list, the chart will be switched to that timeframe.

4: Underlying Assets and Technical Analysis Settings Bar

By clicking a button with a current underlying asset, you will have access to the full list of assets and instruments that Binolla offers to its traders. The list allows you to pick any underlying asset and look through its price change for the past 24 hours as well as to check the profitability of each currency pair, commodity, stock, etc. in order to make the right trading decision. 

Here you can also add underlying assets to your favorities list and have quick access to them in the future. There is also a search bar, which allows you to find your preferred underlying assets in a matter of seconds.

Switching between underlying assets may be necessary for several reasons. First and foremost, you can simply find one that is going to outperform the other according to your forecasts. To find out more about how to pick one, read our How to Choose an Underlying Asset for Trading article.

Traders often use several assets at a time for diversification reasons. Therefore, by getting into this section, you can find all the underlying assets you need to select those you want to trade at a particular moment.

The Binolla platform offers all those popular tools that traders can use to forecast price fluctuations. To reach this section, you simply need to click the icon to toggle the menu and choose whatever tool you are going to use:

  • Drawings;
  • Trend Indicators;
  • Oscillators.

Types of Digital Options Contracts

The platform provides traders with access to the most popular Forex currency pairs and cryptocurrencies. This allows you to use both traditional and modern popular digital coins. The list of underlying assets is constantly changing and you will find even more of them in the near future.

Along with traditional digital options where you can choose expiration, we have added a 5s Scalping feature, which allows you to trade ultra-fast fixed-time contracts that expire in 5 seconds. With this option, you have even more benefits as you can try to make money on smaller price fluctuations.

To choose Fixed-Time contracts, you need to go to assets and click on the Fixed Time button. Next, you will be able to choose an asset and proceed with defining the amount of investment and choosing the direction of the contract.

When it comes to 5s Scalping, to pick this type of contract, you need to go to assets, click on 5s Scalping, then proceed with picking an underlying asset, as well as choosing the direction. In 5s Scalping contracts, you don’t need to set expiration as it is predefined by the conditions of the option.


Traders who use technical analysis with drawing tools can find everything they need here. From trend lines to support and resistance levels, and even Fibonacci retracements. To find out more about the main levels, you can read our Support and Resistance Levels: How to Use Them article.

Trend Indicators

Finding trends is crucial for trading. Apart from the trend line, that is available in the Drawings menu, you can use several trend indicators that allow you to automate the process of discovering the current market tendency. 


Those indicators are designed to demonstrate the current price momentum. We offer the most popular ones so that you can use them in trend-reversal strategies.

5: Platform Settings, Support, Trading History

The left part of the platform boasts a lot of great features, allowing you to customize it and look through the history of your trading activities. The Portfolio menu opens a special screen below the chart where you can see all the contracts that are currently active (before digital option expirations).

The next important option that you have here is History. After the digital contract expires, the information about it goes directly to this menu. You can use it to analyze your performance and adjust your trading strategy by making more data-driven decisions.

Binolla Alerts is a very useful feature that allows traders to set notifications about a particular price level. By clicking on the Create Alert button, a trader will see a window where they can select the target price of the asset from the chart. 

Binolla Blog Image - Binolla Platform General Guide 34

Once the price reaches the alert level, you will see a notification Price Alert with the price on it. This feature allows traders to follow key levels from where they want to buy a particular asset without monitoring the asset all the time.

Scroll allows you to scroll the chart with the mouse wheel when the cursor is on the chart. The second, Zoom, allows traders to zoom in and out of the chart by scrolling the mouse wheel. 

The next important option opens the bar timer feature. It demonstrates how much time is left before the current Japanese, Heiking Ashi or bar candlestick will be closed. This feature is very useful during market analysis and decision-making process as it allows traders not to disperse their attention and focus on the current market situation.

Binolla Ratings
